Leadership 2017

Save the Date: Leadership Convention Dinner

Dear friends,

With Leadership 2017 delegate selection voting officially underway, I wanted to let you know about a special event for our party.

On September 15th, the party will host a Leadership Convention Dinner at the RBC Convention Centre (375 York Ave) in downtown Winnipeg. The event will feature our leadership candidates — Steve Ashton & Wab Kinew — and takes place the night before the September 16th Leadership Convention.

This event is a special opportunity for New Democrats to come together and celebrate the work we've shared during the leadership race.
